    More than anything, XDA is a community, and we're all here for different reasons.

    Some are here to mod their phone--some joined just to ask a question. Or perhaps, like many, you joined so long ago, you have no idea why you're here (which is totally fine! we've been around for almost a decade). :cool: And we're in the process of making XDA more useful to everyone here now that we've moved to much better forum software.

    But we'd love to know your XDA story: why are you here, and who are you? What's your day job, what phones do you have, where do you live, what do you like to do for fun? We'd love to get to know you!

    Also, be sure to spend some time filling out your profile:


    And also adding what phones you have to your inventory:


    :cowboy: thanks and welcome. I'm one of the guys in charge and my DMs are always open if you ever want to chat or even complain.

    Hello. I have an LG expression 3 and a MotoG 7 power .i am here looking for a ROM or theme for both phones.
    A while back I had an AOPk boot animation that was awesome and the alien ROM ( I think) . it had awesome fonts and icons. I was wondering if UI theme kitchen is still around and if either phone is rootable and or would be compatible with the theme kitchen. ?? Its been a while but I really hope you can help me find something . both phones are pretty plain and boring .

    Well i like the internet especially for the opportunity to learn from others and share information with people that equaly appreciate the content as much as i do.

    Here i gonna admid i am more on the newby side.. I played around with phones in the past. Mostly following up tutorials of people that really understand what they are doing... And this way i can create something with their help that me on my own would be hard to accomplish... We build on each other in different aspects of life and here i am appreciating to receive knowledge of the ones that are really into electronics/software/programming. ..

    Its a strange, extremly complex but logic world that i find myself in when dealing with modifiying electronics .

    Thanks for sharing this with me

    Thanks for everyone

    Hoi, im Aaron, and my main reason for joining XDA is to ask for help that i need with a program.
    But in future it will also be useful to Mod my Phone (SM-202F) My First phone that i have as a 2005 guy for now, as it's getting out of support XDA will be my source to keep it alive.
    Also i helped someone rooting a device with stuff from XDA, i never got succeed rooting myself, its very hard for fire tablet's)
    Also on XDA are useful Apps like MiXPlorer that i use.
    At all i'm just a random guy interested in technology which is having fun in modifying and playing around with software, also i like to search bugs hehe
    Dont know what else i could mention now

    Hi. I'm a french CS engineer and a Debian addict.

    I systematically root all my phones and have a specialization in tuning the iptables to not talk to the GAFAMs. Rooted phones so far : Huawei codenames HAM, NEML51, old samsung phones, a couple of Wiko phones.

    I've been following XDA-developers for a decade and decide now to onboard :
    * Short-term goal : get some help on a very edge case involving dm-verity and kali nethunter on Nexus5X (bullhead)
    * Long-term goal : wait patiently for the day when a full debian phone / ubuntu touch will be available at a relatively low price, and help all along

    Hi, I'm Carl. I've always been very interested in tech but never had the courage to go into the details like programming. I know my phone is limited by its software, but I couldn't really be bothered to look into it as it is complex and I'm so unfamiliar with it that it quickly gets old having to look up 3 words per sentence just to understand some of the basic software architecture of Android phones.

    I've been reading about how to get root access so as to flash your preferred custom ROM onto your phone to gain control over it. That way I can remove the bloatware and free up some resources, (and perhaps de-google it at a later stage). Perfection is attained not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to remove.

      Hey everyone. My name is George and I'm here because it seems to be the best spot for friendly and accurate advice. I'm a somewhat educated noob but I'm struggling to root my Samsung S8 (created a post in the relevant forum). Always been interested in outside the box capabilities of hardware but not ventured too far yet...

      I like it to be here because here is so many content to use from if you are ready to get into the materia.

      Thanks to the XDA team and all the developers and people with helpful hints.

      Hi everyone.
      I stumbled across this site years ago, and have re-visited on rare occasions (I'm not a tech savvy user), but never really felt the need to sign up until now. I recently got an LG G5 on ultra cheap as a secondary phone. I've always had an interest in their handsets, but ironically, never got around to actually buy one until LG shut down their phone division. Anyway, with the free time I have nowadays, I thought I'd tinker with this device a bit.
